Exhibition: Marvin’s 3rd Eye Paintings
February 7, 2014 - March 4, 2014
CRS (Center for Remembering & Sharing) is delighted to announce the exhibition of a series of 3rd eye paintings by Marvin Rosenberg. Marvin appears to be peaceful and calm at all times, and he conveys this experience of timeless peace through his paintings. An Opening Reception with the artist will be held Saturday, Feb 8 from 5:30 – 7:30 pm.
The spareness of the compositions suggests that the distractions of the world of perception have been largely stripped away, encouraging us to focus on our awareness of our own consciousness. His vivid use of color and the roundness of his subjects’ eyes communicate joy and wakeful presence, allowing us to let go of our own thoughts and say yes to bliss. The paintings will remain on view from Feb 8 – March 4, 2014, and you can experience the peace of Marvin in person at his Gentle Yoga classes every Tuesday & Thursday from 5:30 – 6:30 pm at CRS.
“I am trying to express something higher,
some state of intuition, some state of realization,
an atmosphere we can all enter,
of calmness, of wideness.
A place where we can experience the delight of being.”
About Marvin Rosenberg
Marvin Rosenberg was born in New York City. As a teenager he started to draw and paint. When he was 21, he met a man who greatly influenced the course of his life, named Sam Spanier. Sam was a successful artist who started an ashram based upon the teachings of the Indian mystic Sri Aurobindo. It was Sam who introduced Marvin to Yoga and Meditation and encouraged him to continue painting and pursue all the aspects of his being. He studied Modern Dance and choreography, performing and presenting his own work in NYC. He studied Hatha Yoga and was asked to teach a basic yoga class, which became known as Gentle Yoga. He has been teaching gentle yoga for the past 20 years and currently teaches this class at CRS every Tuesday and Thursday from 5:30 – 6:30 pm.
